Locals warn politicos over illegal slums in Western suburbs 20.6.2018 DNA: Opinion
The elections might still be a year away, but residents from Borivali and Dahisar have decided to send out a clear message to political parties, that they would mass boycott politicians in coming election who will continue to aid illegal encroachments at Ganpat Patil Nagar, which has grown to be the biggest illegal slum pocket in the Western suburbs. In fact, several resident groups from areas like IC Colony, Navagaon, Kandarpada, and Link Road have come together and initiated a signature campaign, which will be submitted to all elected representatives from the area asking them to clarify their stance on Ganpat Patil Nagar and seek commitment to resolving the issue. The slums were built on an eco-sensitive zone, which is classified as wetlands and is under Coastal Regulatory Zone (CRZ). An RTI indicated that there were only 404 hutments prior to 1995 and only 1068 built between then and year 2000, but today, there are more than 15000 structures at Ganpat Patil Nagar, which continue to grow at an alarming ...

Buffer zone reduction in CRZ draft rules has green brigade go red 12.6.2018 DNA: Recent Columns
Environment activists warn of dire ecological and environmental consequences if the new provisions for buffer zone limit around mangroves in the draft Coastal Regulation Zone Notification (CRZ) of 2018 are implemented. "Under the draft notification, the buffer zone has been reduced from 100 mt to a mere 50 mt. This will have an adverse impact on the ecology, environment and livelihood of the locals there," said Mahesh Pandya of Paryavaran Mitra. The activists are in fact demanding that the buffer zone for mangroves be restored to 500 mt as per the CRZ notification of 1991. "The 500-mt buffer zone was reduced to 100 mt and, now, it has further been reduced to 50 mt. It has been done to allow for development activities, most of which will benefit the industries," said Pandya. Nikita Sonawane, a researcher with Centre for Social Justice, said several other changes introduced in the 2018 draft notification were a matter of concern. "The areas that are classified as CRZ-1 include ecologically sensitive area ...

DNA EXCLUSIVE: Mumbai has to maintain position as commercial engine, says Ajoy Mehta 24.5.2018 DNA: Top News
Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation ( BMC) hopes the Development Plan 2034 & Development Control Rules will help Mumbai maintain its pre-eminence as a commercial engine. In an exclusive interview, city civic chief Ajoy Mehta clears ambiguities and misconceptions about the city's new Development Plan (DP). Will opening of No Development Zone (NDZ) come at the cost of the environment and benefit only builders? That is a misnomer -- NDZ was never a no-development zone. In the 1967 and 1991 DPs, Floor Space Index (FSI) of 0.5 was allowed on NDZ. Of the 13,000 hectares of NDZ in Greater Mumbai, 10,000 hectare is marked as Natural Area (NA). What is left is 3,000 hectare, of which 700 to 800 hectare has slums. Hence we are left with about 2,200 hectare, which we are taking up for development. If the NDZ land, which we call Social Development Zone (SDZ), has to be developed, the owner will have to divide and allot one-third for housing, one-third for open space and one-third for sale. We have marked a huge ...
